Internship Wind Turbine Data Analytics and Optimizing Noise and Power Forecast Model
Arcadis uses meteorological models for the prediction of the long-term wind climate, short term wind power forecasts, etcetera. Building on this technology Arcadis developed an app for residents to obtain insight into wind turbine noise forecasts (see www.arcadis.com/noiseforecast). There are a lot more uses for these new prediction models, but further optimization and more research is needed.
The research internship offers a broad range of activities. It is mainly aimed at the further optimization and validation of the noise forecast app and the development of new related applications like Power BI dashboards.
The internship will include:
- analysis of large data sets of wind turbine data;
- noise measurement data;
- feedback data from residents;
- weather data;
- improving or adding features to the noise and shadow flicker forecast script.
Noise measurements at wind turbines or at residential areas can also be part of the internship. Also, we would like to further improve short term predictions by pattern recognition (statistical analysis) or machine learning techniques and to better determine the influence of the input data. We are looking for an open-minded independent analyst that can identify patterns in the data and sees opportunities for improvement and innovation.
Besides the specific research project there is also room to help in regular studies for wind projects.
Will you help us to further optimize and innovate our state-of-the-art noise and power forecast model?
For this (4 to 6 months) Internship we are looking for a student with the following profile: Bachelor/Master student with a study related to applied physics, aerospace engineering, sustainable energy technology, meteorology, mechanical engineering, artificial intelligence or big-data analytics.
